Your Museum Needs You!

Your museum needs you!

At 10.30am on Saturday 24th January, the John Bunyan Museum & Library is holding an open morning for anyone interested in volunteering at the museum.

This independent museum, in the heart of Bedford’s Cultural Quarter, is run by a team of dedicated volunteers of all ages.

New volunteers are always needed to help welcome the visitor, and keep the museum open. This year we are also looking for volunteers with skills and experience with schools, marketing, admin, and an interest in working with the collections.

Curator, Nicola Sherhod said,

“The volunteers do a fantastic job. They work in the museum and the shop, greeting visitors and sharing their own enthusiasm for the amazing story we tell here. Volunteers can also work behind the scenes developing trails, and children’s activities, and helping look after our collections. It’s fascinating and rewarding work, and with lots of exciting projects planned for 2015 it’s a great time to volunteer at the museum, and get involved.”  

The Open Morning starts at 10.30am in the Foyer Coffee Shop at Bunyan Meeting, next to the museum. Meet and chat with some of the stewards, have a tour around the museum, and find out what Museum Stewards do and how you might get involved.

The John Bunyan Museum will reopen on Tuesday 17th February 2015 and is open Tuesday to Saturday 11.00am – 4.00pm and admission is free.
